Description
Eldernet provides you with timely, relevant, and comprehensive information about services for older people in New Zealand.
The Eldernet site includes a nationwide database directory and comprehensive information about community groups and organisations, home help services, rest homes, retirement villages, residential care, private hospitals, dementia care, public hospitals and other third age services for seniors.

If you want:
- an overview of services and options that may be available to you
- extensive information (more than an overview)
- links to a range of relevant organisations and services
- to find out how to access services including needs assessment and service coordination (NASC)
- information that will help you support an 'elderly' person
- many of your difficult questions answered

Then it's all here.

Please note this is a TEST PAGE ONLY. The information we have entered in the various fields gives you an idea of the things you can look for in a service eg does the facility provide day care, respite care or short term care.

This section at the top of the page should encourage you to read further.

The Ministry of Health conducts regular audits of Residential Care Facilities. They can be found HERE.

NOTE: The Retirement Villages Act 2003 (The Act) is designed to provide improved protection for people who ‘buy’ into a retirement village. If you intend to ‘purchase’ you must get independent legal advice before signing your occupation right agreement as required under The Act. Some Retirement Village type facilities are not required to register under The Act so different legal requirements apply. Please make sure you investigate fully.

In some villages there may be some Retirement Village units that have multiple uses e.g. a Serviced Apartment may also be used as a Residential Care Suite. The same unit may therefore show in several places on Eldernet.
